Discussion of India's new proposed National Curriculum Framework, which while it lauds the fact that it "has put the child firmly at the centre of its proposals," points to problems in providing infrastructure and support to back such a program. "Historian Irfan Habib points out that "almost every proposal it (the NCF 2005) makes is only practical - if at all! - for elite schools." Good read, and some of the observations apply beyond India's borders. Via education-india.
